According to some state leaders, the proposal failed because it required a tax increase.
In an interview with WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, Snyder says he does not think the failure will bar any future legislation that requires a tax increase, just that voters did not like the idea.
For Governor Snyder, it is back to square one.
“This is about getting a better answer for Michiganders. I was hired to do a job by the citizens of Michigan and I want to give them good service,” says Governor Snyder.
One fellow Michigan Republican Senator says Snyder does have a plan in the works that would fund state road repair with money from an old state fund.
